A treat in honor of the team that just visited Barnett last week. Brings back memories of being up on Spring Mountain myself.. Gorgeous, intoxicating nose of lilacs, raisins, cocoa, cranberry, and black plum. The palate is expansive but smooth as silk. More chocolate and raisins on the palate, bright features that speak to the elevation with a nice acidity too. Powerful but elegant at the same time - what I love most about mountain fruit. A delicious wine that will only improve over time but I don't even care that I opened it this young, it's delicious right now.

Highly concentrated blue/purple in the glass, gives way to hints of smoky blueberries and spice. Nice mid palate, smooth oaky finish. Excellent! @Barnett Vineyards

What a treat! Extremely powerful in its youth but that's what happens when you use 60%+ new French oak. Initially decanted this for 2 hours, but it ended up finally showing the tip of the iceberg at 3. The nose was enticing, showing spicy cedar, clove and cigar ash components, and brambley red fruits. The juice itself was dark purple and had long, slow moving legs, showing its high alcohol and concentration. The pallet exhibited notes of pomegranate seeds, tobacco, black pepper, black berries, smoke, vanilla extract, faint hints of dark chocolate powder and we'll integrated tannins tightly weaving all the complex layers together and producing a gripping finish. This juice needs much more time in the bottle, but was an absolute pleasure to experience now. Way to go David Tate! You're a heck of a wine maker! Drink 2018-2030 $89.99
